Maybe as it gets closer, we could plan a brief "hi, nice to meet you" type CR forum meetup or something? I know people will be busy attending panels, performances (HELLO, Uematsu!!!!!!), photoshoots, and such so maybe taking like 10 minutes to chat.

Just an idea.

A lot of people meet up on Thursday evening at the Hyatt. There is a thread about it on acen's forum. It's an ideal time, Then you won't miss anything from the convention.

Yes! I was actually thinking about going to that as well because I wanted to pick up my badge that night instead of wait the next morning. I think I read somewhere on the forum that I could do that...

I just wasn't sure how many CR forum people would be attending the meet and greet on Thursday. Thanks!

Agreed. Unless it would be easier for people to attend the meetup that DuHolt is talking about on Thursday.

Awesome. I always love seeing people cosplay, love taking photos. I will be cosplaying--hopefully my Nora Valkyrie (RWBY) and Yui (Angel Beats!) will be all done by then...

I'm getting my badge mailed and won't be downtown until Friday unfortunately due to work. But I can try to do a meet up on Thursday night.

Cool. I'll also be keeping tabs on the ACen forum thread as well.

I've known about this for a while and live in the Chicago-land area, but I don't think I'll be attending. While it sounds amazing and I'm dying a little on the inside, hopefully I'll be able to make it to the next one. T-T

Silly question, why didn't you have it mailed to you... personally can't stand the badge line. I still remember the year the computers crashed.

Oh and since I haven't seen it mentioned, I saw that they posted a preliminary panel schedule.

Not a silly question--I've asked myself that question a couple of times now. I also hate the badge line and should know better. Not sure what I was thinking since I bought it last fall...but I'm hoping going to pick it up Thursday will help ease the pain. :-/

Yay prelim schedule! Thanks for posting.

Unfortunately it's just the panels so far. When other things, like the Final Fantasy concert, get announced I'll have to make some hard decisions about what I want to see and do. Also can't forget about how quick some of the lines fill up for events... there were a few things I wanted to see last year and if you weren't in line a couple hours early, you weren't getting in.
